Author has written 6 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon, and Kuroshitsuji.
I'm Anncatz, and I am a long-time member of Fanfiction.net. I currently publish fanfiction for the Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) series, and I formerly published fanfiction for the Yu-Gi-Oh and Digimon series.
This story is my first full-length work for the Black Butler series. Just as the fic's summary indicates, it involves Madam Red returning as a Grim Reaper, instead of properly passing on to the afterlife. Certain plot elements may border on an Alternate Universe (AU) tint, but I do my best to tie the story closely to the known, canon principles.
My fellow fanfic writer Contramundi01 deserves special thanks for contributing to this fic. He devised many of the core plot points, edited dialogue, and even wrote certain scenes. His clever ideas provided me with a great trove of inspiration to write, and for that I am grateful.

Anncatz' Ridiculous Crossover Ideas:
I like to joke that, someday, I'm going to write a really bad crossover fanfic. It's not true, of course, but the ideas provide my friends with much entertainment:
It all started one day when I went to an anime convention and bought two keychains: chibi Ciel Phantomhive and chibi Roy Mustang. When I held the keychains next to each other, I realized that Ciel and Mustang--with their dark hair in similar styles and their serious facial expressions--could totally pass for father and son. The more I thought about it, the more entertaining it became... Remember how, in Conqueror of Shamballa, Roy Mustang wore an eye patch? CLEARLY Ciel acquired that trait from Mustang. I mean, the tendency to require an eye patch is totally inheritable. Duh.
So, using FMA's "Gate" as a poorly explained plot device, it shall be revealed that "Other Mustang" actually lived in the 1800's under the name of Vincent Phantomhive!!! Yeah. It makes complete sense.
Elfen Lied / Ouran High School Host Club
Kurama from Elfen Lied is a guy with glasses that shine mysteriously. It's all too reminiscent of Kyoya Ootori from Ouran. Given the character designs, Kurama even looks like he could be an older Ootori brother. I mean, in the Ouran anime, we never even get to see Kyoya's brothers' faces, so Kurama very well could have some relation to the Ootori family. Also, Kurama is intelligent and well-educated, and he has a neato job as a scientist / doctor. Sounds like something an Ootori would do. Obviously, Kurama is Kyoya's elder brother, meaning that Kyoya is actually the uncle of an insane, 5-year-old Diclonius child.
Because shut up.
